Description [Edit]

Great line on the backside of the Highball Boulder - start on some high crimps and work your way up a precarious and delicate face. The crux is super cryptic and the feet are horrible at first. I am not going to give away beta here in part because I had to work out the sequence over multiple visits.

; )

Note...

This problem is listed in the online guide as V4 which is a bit of a stretch as it is harder than any of the other V4's in the area imo. The current consensus (other than the guidebook) is V5/6. I would personally call it a stout V5+ or V6 (depending on the area). Also the top moves are not trivial as the guidebook suggests and involves a large dyno with your feet about 10 feet OTD so pad up and have attentive spotters as the landing is a bit sketch.

Location [Edit]

Backside of the highball boulder

Protection [Edit]
